I hate beets, but for some weird reason, I like this soup. Serve chilled with a dollop of sour cream. Cook time is chill time.

I was going to post a similar recipe. This comes out fine. If you're keeping kosher, use a parve bouillion cube to make the broth.<br/><br/>It tastes like the borscht the Catskills hotels would serve at lunch. It looks great.
